Why Original Photography? Here Are 5 Good Reasons.

The following post was written by Chad Vander Lugt, Executive Creative Director. I had just finished a billboard assignment for a small chain of credit unions in Michigan. We were not using original photography. Rather, we used a series of trendy, colorful stock images of people. We placed small black rectangles over their eyes. The headlines confessed, “I’m Steve and I bank at a bank.” The goal of the campaign was to remind Kalamazoo commuters that it really was quite shameful to pay ATM fees all of the other fees banks required. Our scrappy little credit union offered so much…

For 113 years, Buche Foods of Wagner has provided fresh, quality food at a fair price.

When the lease of Pine Ridge’s only grocery store came up for bid, they saw an opportunity to not only serve but also provide an essential lifeline for the town.

HenkinSchultz Looks Ahead in 2018

A Message from Becka Burger, Partner and Director of Client Services At the beginning of 2018, or any year, it’s common for many to reflect and look backwards.
